Great tour guide Virginia took us to oldest cafes, deli and other special places in Porto to sample the local foods and try various combos of wines and ports that went with each petite treat and all on foot.
The whole tour group was English speaking so she may have been frustrated with her little entourage at times given we were all happy to speak in our native tongue after being in various parts of Portugal and not speaking the language.
A fun time had by all
We had a group of 9 and got Sid as a tour guide. Great time and what a fun tour. Perfect for outgoing 20 year olds that like to party. Highly recommend! Thanks!
This tour was in incredible value for the money. Our guide, Virginia, took us to several about 6 or 7 different stops during our food tour of Porto, introducing us to the food and drink of the region. We stopped in little shops that we never would have discovered on our own, experiencing classics like port and the local Francesinha sandwich as well as local secrets such as the anise flavored Eduardino liquor that fishermen used to drink in the mornings. We all left feeling quite full and a little buzzed. A perfect afternoon in my book! Virginia was very friendly and eager to share her city. Definitely take this tour at the beginning of your Porto experience so that you will know exactly what to eat and drink during the remainder of your stay.
Virginia was very interesting and knowledgeable about Porto. We tried few dishes and obscure places we wouldn't have considered entering if we were on our own. It is definitely worth it.
LOVE this!! Our Bluedragon tour guide was awesome. She took us to hole in the wall places where the locals go. We sampled traditional Portuguese food and drinks while listening to the history of this beautiful and hilly city through it's food. Go into this tour with an empty stomach because you eat a lot while also drinking a lot too! Great way to get to know Porto. Would highly recommend this tour:
Perfect way to gather your bearings on the city of Porto. ability to try local foods and wines while also learning where everything is is the best part.
Vanessa was great as the guide and showed as well as taught us to experience local food and wines
This tour was absolutely fantastic. Our guide Virginia was not only delightful and accomodating but also very knowledgeable about Porto and its' food. The food and drinks we tasted were of high quality. The Nata Lisboa from Flores Porto were better than the ones in Lisbon, so fresh! Word of warning. Don't eat anything before you go or you won't be able to eat everything your given.
We had an amazing time on this tour. We had no idea that the food would be so diverse and delicious in Porto. There was just three of us so the tour was small and personal allowing us to ask questions and get additional information on the history and culture of Porto. Definitely one of the best parts of our trip!
Sid was an amazing tour guide! He knew all the best spots and was knowledgeable about Porto! He made the tour feel personal as if it was a friend taking you around the city! I recommend this tour and company!
Virginia was great. She answered all our questions about Porto, Portugal, the food, and anything related. I highly recommend this tour. It was enriching.
First off, Virginia was our guide and she was very informative and just adorable! She really loves Porto and is enthusiastic. The places we went to were fun and the food was very good and the port and local drinks were excellent as well. We were in a small group and were together for 4 plus hours. Virginia knew the area from a historical sense as well as telling us personal stories and connecting them to the tour. We did do a lot of walking, so be prepared. I would highly recommend this tour early in your stay here, it will give you a good idea of what to do and not to do in the following days.
Excellent well thought out tour. Virginia was a fantastic guide who was easy to communicate with as well as being really knowledgeable about the area. The food was top quality and excellent Port and Wine tasting along the way to finish with a picturesque view of Porto. Easily the best way to see Porto!
One of the best experiences we ever had.Nice little places with good food,impossible to find if you didn't have a guide.Virginia,our tour guide,was amazing.She was punctual,speaks very well english and she has a great personality.We loved every minute of those almost six hours.Great tour,great guide and a beautiful city that you shouldn't miss,if you travelled to Portugal
Highly recommend this tour. This was my first Gastronomy tour of a city and not only was the food and drinks great (lots of it!!) but my guide Virginia was able to a local insight into the Porto way of life and lots of extra things to do during my stay.
Best way to see Porto and great value for
Our tour guide "Sid" was an absolute legend! He was more than capable of answering any questions we had and was clearly very knowledgeable about the history of the city. He read our group well and could tell that we weren't very interested in lots of historical facts so therefore tailored the tour to suit us.
The tour went on for much longer than 4 hours. At the end of the tour Sid kindly marked out the locations of popular bars and restaurants on our maps and provided us with public transport information for getting to the best beaches.
We had spent 2 days by ourselves sightseeing in Porto before we did the tour... we thought we'd seen it all but we were very wrong. He brought us down lots of side streets and alley ways off the beaten track that we would of never seen ourselves. This is a great way to see the city and I highly recommend it.
It was a nice food tour. Very personable and friendly tour guide. At times, it felt a little unorganized but We were the only couple on the tour, so who knows if it is always like that. I would recommend this food tour to anyone going to Porto.
Virginia, our guide was amazing. She took us to some lovely cafe's where we tried some wonderful local dishes and drinks. Things we would never had tasted or places we would never have found for ourselves.
She was also extremely generous with her time and stayed with us far longer than we would have expected.
We both felt the tour made our visit to Oporto - a very beautiful city. We will certainly recommend the city and especially the tour to all of our friends.
Thank you so much Virginia

Virginia our guide was great. It's the best way to see and experience Porto. Due to a conflict with guide availability we had to modify our time. The manager of the tour company was very flexible, and we wound up getting a private tour by default. You taste a wide array of food and drinks. She took us to places we never would have found and really enjoyed. I couldn't imagine any other way to experience this city.
Our time spent in Porto was unbelievable!!! Our guide Virginia did and excellent job taking us on a walking tour and explaining all of the sights to us. She didn't stop there, we sampled local wines, coffee and desserts from this region along with in-depth explanations of their culture, history and traditions. Porto is a lovely city and the people are very friendly and welcoming. Thank you Virginia for a great time!
